OK.....it's been several weeks since the new rates have kicked in, so how are you making out? As for me, we are surviving better than I expected with the new rates. Yes, we get alot of the $1.05 loads BUT we have also gotten several that paid alot more than that. We are still getting a good fuel surcharge rate AND I have noticed that there has been a small, steady increase in freight. All in all, we are surviving and thriving. Personally, I see things just getting better and better....not just for tri-state but for all freight in general. We all just have to keep those belts tightened and run smart. We CAN survive and thrive!!!
